This super easy butternut squash soup is the perfect Fall recipe to keep you warm and full. And did I mention it’s only 1 point!
The farmer’s market is stocked with beautiful squashes and pumpkins this time of year. I bought this beautiful squash and got inspired to paint my kitchen the same color. This soup is low in points and is very filling. Enjoy!
How to Peel and Cut and Butternut Squash
- Cut both ends, bottom and top, of the squash. Using a large spoon scrape out the seeds and strings.
- Cut the squash in large chunks and place in a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes.
- Drain and let the squash cool. The skin will come off easily with a pairing knife.
